At first I thought that this book would be quite sad, but it isn't.
It's narrated by 12 year old Gussie.

It could be very easily overly sentimental, given Gussie's circumstances, but she is quite a gutsy young lady.
She is going through all the usual teenage angst things, but with a very grown up head on her shoulders. Gussie is wise beyond her years.

For the bumph on the book and the chance to read an extract;

This book won the children's Costa Book Award.
